“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 15 June 2007

I stayed at this little hotel recently and was blown away by the service. The owner and his wife have run the hotel for many years and obviously have a great sense of pride in their operation. The rooms are clean and nice, the rates reasonable, and the customer service impeccable. It is refreshing to stay in a hotel that is bucking the current trend of nickel and diming you for everything and sticking you for extra nights if you check out early. The Port Inn is the real deal. I highly recommend it.

I agree with all the other reviews. Cute little place, good rates ($80 something for a Sun. nite in May), only a 20 min walk into downtown which we did a couple times. The towels were of great quality, bathroom was nicely done, room was fine. They offered Royal Dansk cookies in the afternoon and a good spread for the cont. breakfast but we were going out so we didn't take advantage of it. Everyone there was very nice, if only all hotels had that great combo.

This motel was a real find. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, and in a good location. The people went out of their way to be helpful. We plan to stay there again when we are in the area.

Traveling by car for l4 hours, we wanted to have a goal of where to stay that would be a good value for the money. The pictures on the websight looked too good to be true but in reality The Port was decorated in a lovely way. We arrived at l0 p.m. and yet were warmly welcomed by the owner. Our room was in perfect condtion and beautifully decorated with top quality bedding. Our room even had a kitchenette that we did not have time to use but it was nice to know about should we return to the area. Good easy chair, table and chairs to drink coffee at. Everything was in good working condition. A generous continental breakfast was served with a nice variety. The staff was very helpful. The reviews more than lived up to the actual description. We can strongly recommend that you don't pass up The Port should you be in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

We stayed at the Port Inn for three nights the end of March. They had a special two night "shopping'pkg for $149, including a gift basket of wine, cheese, candy, and coupons, plus we stayed a third night at the AAA rate of $80. Compared to all the other accommodations in the area, this was a bargain.

The Inn was centrally located - about 10 minutes to downtown Portsmouth, and very close to Kittery Maine for outlet shopping. We were not happy with the location of the room when we checked in - in the front by the main intersection. We were concerned it would be noisy. The staff said that it would not be noisy, but were more than happy to move us to a location in the back. They were extremely accommodating. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The only complaint was that the bathroom was extremely small - but that was minor. Everything else in the room was fine.


They had a complimentary breakfast - coffee, muffins, danish, juice - we just had their juice and went to one of the many coffee cafes in downtown Portsmouth that we really enjoyed.

I would highly recommend staying here and if we visit Portsmouth again in the future, we will have no hesitation staying at the Port Inn again.

We made the reservation via the phone, the guy was very polite and explained us about the package.
We arrived the Port Inn a little late due to severe snow storm but the receptionist was very nice and made our check in very smooth.
Clean and pretty room, bathroom is neat and clean.
The complimentary wireless internet was great...the location is very convenient...
We will stay there again...

My wife and I were in Portsmouth on a brief holiday, and were very pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the room. The owners and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The location on the Portsmouth Circle is convenient, but not so close to the interstate that it was noisy. Everything was as it should be, and we will definitely return on our next trip to the area. There is no better value in the Portsmouth area.
